Scholarships & Funding

What costs are associated with Study Abroad?

Program Fee

This covers all your accommodations, entrance fees to museums, transportation & activities included in your program. Some programs even include meals! Learn more about what is included in each program on Programs page.


As these programs include two classes, the tuition for these programs is part of the costs associated with Study Abroad. FYI: Out-of-state students pay in-state tuition rate for Study Abroad classes!

Education Abroad Fee

The OEA Fee is an administrative fee from the Office of Education Abroad. This fee is only for international programs. Study USA programs do not have the Education Abroad Fee!

How to Pay

Program fees are posted on students' MyFIU account. Students have various method of payments options available to them. They may choose to pay in-person (recommended), online, wire transfer, and via mail. Learn more about making payments here: How to Pay.

It is highly recommended that students pay in-person at Student Financial cashier’s counter on MMC or BBC as payments paid online may not go directly to Study Abroad program fees. The Office of Education Abroad and the Honors College are not responsible for late fees due to payment going to the wrong fees.

Have you been awarded financial aid?
Students who have been awarded financial aid are still responsible to have the payments made on time and in their entirety. It is the student's responsibility to contact Financial Aid to ensure that their award will disburse by the payment deadline and cover the full balance. If the pending aid/scholarship will not cover the full amount due, it is the student's responsibility to pay the remaining balance out of pocket by the deadline.
